I have a couple of them but haven't tried it out on the Diavel yet but they worked nice on my past bikes.

I rode 35 kms today on reserve (light went on at 185 kms)and when I filled up there were still 2 litres left in the 17 litre tank. My previous estimation on the range of the tank may have been a little, umm, optimistic I am still hoping as the engine is run in more that this might improve a little.
I forsee many petrol stops in the future...ah well, have to give the general public opportunities to stand around and stare and make funny "ooooh...ahhhh" noises.

The captain's post is accurate in how the fuel consumption display works. There *is* no gas gauge per se, so I agree with the advice to fill up as soon as possible after the light comes on. (I ended up with just under 3/4 gal US remaining in the tank after driving about 15 miles with the light on.)

... I hope not, that's as thirsty as my SUV! i reckon on twice that I would say, with a not push it (else you might!) past 15 miles before refuelling.

I've done the same and no issues arose. I just made sure to wipe it all down thoroughly with a damp cloth. Now I am wiser and super careful when filling up.

I'm using Ownersite to keep all sorts of details on my new baby. If anyone's interested, you can view my mileage & maintenance information here:
2011 Ducati Diavel Carbon
(There's nothing much there yet, as I haven't yet had to fill up after the initial tankful.)

I addressed this on another post. Avg over 3 tanks in differing riding conditions was almost spot on 7l/100km using the tripometer (i only ever use tripometer for monitoring fuel and consumption). Cheers

Excuse my stupidity, but are you saying 100km per tank?
Posted 12 April 2011 - 12:42 PM
No he is saying 7L/100km. With a 17L tank you will get a total of 242Km per tank. But I think you will refueling at 220km max.

About 33 MPG US then. Fuel warning will probably come on at about 100 miles I suppose?
Posted 12 April 2011 - 04:21 PM
Can anybody tell us the exact mileage that they are getting until the reserve counter cuts in? Both in Miles and Km's? And how much fuel (litres, gallons both UK and US) it is taking to fill the tank to the brim again? I think these are probably the real questions that everybody wants to know the answers too.
